New Jersey’s 1 million law-abiding gun owners share in the horror of Adam Lanza’s slaughter of 20 defenseless children in Connecticut. He used stolen guns after—in his gruesome spree. We join with the rest of our nation in demanding that steps be taken (jewelers can have armed guards to protect their valuables, why not protect our children with the same vigilance?) to reduce the likelihood of such a mass atrocity happening again.
President Obama has taken his former chief of ataff’s advice not to “let any crisis go to waste.” He lost no time in seeking legislation that both does nothing to inhibit future Lanzas ("gun free zones" still leave children undefended), but also severely infringes upon the 2nd Amendment rights of all citizens.
New Jersey 2nd Amendment Society members are alarmed at the proposed additional restrictions on our rights and will be joining other 2nd Amendment groups across the nation on Feb. 8 who will gather at their respective state capitals simultaneously to exhibit our support for the sole amendment to the U.S. Constitution that defends all of the others.
Buses to Trenton leave from a dozen locations throughout New Jersey, including Morris County. The site closest to Parsippany and Montville is the Montville Office Plaza at 330 Changebridge Road in Pine Brook; the cost is $20.

New Jersey gun owners are quickly gaining a voice. Gun For Hire Radio, which is taped weekly, became one of the top rated podcasts on iTunes in less than a year, and has a following around the world. The New Jersey 2nd Amendment Society itself is less than 3 years old, and has rapidly become known to political leaders and legislators on both sides of the aisle.
Please join with this fast growing group of 2nd Amendment defenders in Trenton on Feb. 8.
